The Good, The Bad and The Different of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

Some minor and major spoilers came out of a promotional Paramount UK screening today via TFW2005 and The Transformers Live Action Movie Blog.

And I meant to only read the minor spoilers but god dammit I ended up reading the major ones, now I’m pissed.

If you go looking, you may not like what you find, to quote William Stryker.

Damn it all to hell…

I have to relate to you, before we get to the spoilers, a favorite Transformers memory of mine. I hate to admit it but I did not see the 1986 animated film until I was an adult, I know, I’m sorry but that’s just how it is. Anyway, I watched it with my husband and a good friend who was an avid Transformers fan. I remember maybe about 20 minutes in, I said out loud, “wow, this sounds a lot like Rocky IV.”

I specifically remember our good friend absolutely cracking up. I asked why and I was informed that Vince DiCola, who did the music on the film was also the music man behind Rocky IV. By the way, he also did Staying Alive, yep, and that’s why he hasn’t worked since the 80’s. [Read more...]

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen UK Review

The biggest movie of the summer is finally here, but that’s the problem with Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen – it’s just too bloody big. Epic, spectacular but unfortunately far, far too long; the film proves that when it comes to Michael Bay blockbuster movies, you can have too much of a good thing.

The first instalment of the sure-to-be-long-running franchise was a perfectly formed slice of funny, explosive, slo-mo mayhem that found a massive worldwide audience. For the sequel, it was clearly the director’s intention to paint Revenge of the Fallen on an epic canvas. It’s more of the same – a lot more.

Two years on from Transformers, the Autobots are still on earth, now allied with the US military, working together to protect the earth from further Decepticon attacks.

Meanwhile, the boy at the centre of events last time around – Shia LaBeouf’s Sam Witwicky – is trying to forget that he discovered a robot alien race, and is instead worried about starting college, and holding onto his ridiculously hot girlfriend Mikaela – (played by a hotpant-clad Megan Fox).

Megan Fox CGi Effect in Transformers 2

In this video from Landline TV, the visual effects crew on Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen talk about how they created Megan Fox using computer imaging and advanced animatronics.

“It’s weird, because you’re pretending to interact with this impossibly hot woman, but it’s really just Michael Bay describing her to you.”

Little known fact: Michael Bay always speaks into a bullhorn, even in his sleep.

Two New Transformers 2 Clips

Megan Fox stopped to chat to take40.com as she fought her way down the red carpet at the world premiere of ‘Transformers – Revenge Of The Fallen.

take40.com asked her whether this was the craziest event she’d been a part of and she replied: “No I think as crazy as it gets is when Robert Pattinson goes anywhere, that’s as crazy as it gets. He’s a Beatle, he’s all the Beatles, he’s the Backstreet Boys band in a person.”

When take40.com put it to her that she might have made Robert cry with her recent quote about him being too young for her Megan confessed “No I know him and he laughs about it, it was a joke.”

Punking friends via the press, good work Megan!

Here are 2 video clips of Megan in Transformers 2.

Megan Fox Talks ‘Jonah Hex,’ Reveals She’s Playing a Prostitute

For obvious reasons, people are excited about the upcoming film adaptation of “Jonah Hex.” And for even more obvious reasons, men are excited to see Megan Fox’s performance in the film.

Now, the stunner is finally talking about her deadly, beautiful and mysterious femme fatale.

“That movie is gonna be amazing,” explained the “Transformers” star. “It’s a post-civil war, apocalyptic type Western. The director Jimmy [Hayward] is a lunatic, and he might be a genius. From some of the things I’ve seen him shoot, it’s a badass movie.”

One of the big questions that have emerged since Fox’s on-set photos have emerged is a simple one: What character is she playing? And the answer is that it’s someone even the most die-hard fan of the comic series probably won’t remember.

“They’ve changed her name a couple of times — it’s Leila now,” Fox explained. “She is a prostitute. She’s a good ol’ working girl, and she’s a love-interest to Jonah… of sorts. I mean, it’s by no means a classic type of relationship.”

“She wasn’t really featured in the comics,” Fox said of her character. “Her name was initially Liala, and now they changed it — or it was Layla, and now they changed it to Leila. … All the women in the movie are prostitutes. … [I’m] sort of a tough, no-nonsense prostitute. Like, she’ll shoot you in the head if she has to. And she does!”

Asked if she means that literally, Fox revealed that she definitely gets to wield a handgun in the flick. “Not in the head,” she grinned. “[But I get to shoot someone] somewhere.”

Co-starring Josh Brolin, John Malkovich and Will Arnett, “Jonah Hex” hits theaters everywhere August 6, 2010.

Megan Fox as Buffy?

Producer talks with IGN about the casting rumor.

Two weeks after she slammed Wonder Woman and reportedly passed on playing Lara Croft comes a rumor about another genre film that Transformers starlet Megan Fox is reportedly under consideration to star in.

Cinefools claims to have heard from an industry source that Fox is being eyed to play the title role of Buffy Summers in the recently announced big-screen relaunch of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. The new movie will not involve Joss Whedon or be tied in anyway to either the 1992 film or the TV series starring Sarah Michelle Gellar that followed.

We recommended Fox, along with several other young hotties, to play the vampire slayer in our recent Buffy Casting Couch column.

IGN contacted Buffy producer Roy Lee about the rumor, who said, “The rumors of Megan Fox being involved with Buffy are just rumors. As with any film project with a female lead under the age of 30, Megan is the actress that most studios want so it is no surprise her name is mentioned. While I think she would be great for our project, we are still in the early stages of developing the script.”

Megan Fox Down to Legalize Marijuana

Maine is leading the way when it comes to reforming cannabis laws. So would our tolerance attract those liberal Hollywood-types?

It Girl Megan Fox, star of the action film Transformers is down for the cause, as Perez Hilton reminded us:

Fox told GQ:

“I can’t tell you how much bullsh*t I’ve been through because I will openly say that I smoke weed…People look at it like it’s this crazy, hippy, fucked up thing to do. And it’s not. I hope they legalize it.”

Do you agree with the star’s take on marijuana?

Megan Fox’s Male Co-Star Wished She Put More Clothes On

Michael Papajohn is the envy of all his friends having worked alongside screen stunner Megan Fox in both the “Transformers” flicks, but it seems the experience of playing her father also had quite the tortuous side.

“I can honestly tell you she’s beautiful, but my buddies are still calling me and emailing me going, ‘Hey, how hot is she?’ and the verdict is I stayed in character the whole time,” Papajohn told Tarts last week at the Palm Pre launch event at Hollywood’s Raleigh Studios. “So I just looked at her from a father’s point of view and I just kept saying in my mind, ‘Oh Megan, I wish you’d put more clothes on’. But I did text my buddies back and said ‘good genes, what can I say?’” [Read more...]
